Thanks, ordered a 144 with sync from Kingofwatersport. Please update with what you think of it! What is your weight?

My weight is 75kg, but I kind of prefer bigger boards because of their low-end. I just got my Chopstick 154, did not have a chance to try it on water yet - no wind these days. It seems a bit heavy - around 4.2kg. Also the flat area of the board's bottom is somewhat smaller than one would think based on board's size because those 'snowboard tips' take about 8 cm on each end, also the side edge is a bit round which makes the width of the flat area smaller by about 1cm. So the 154x45 board is actually something comparable to 138x44cm flat board.

I will add more when I will have a chance to try the chopstick in chop/waves.
